Welcome to Friday, friends!  We’ve had a rainy week that’s kept me doing all the yard work that’s on my to-do list, but it has allowed us to have a pretty relaxing first week of summer vacation.

Today, I’ve pulled a few favorites to share, and they cover everything from Father’s Day gift ideas (it’s coming soon!), to a great set of towels for your college students, to the perfect summer dress.

Starting with the dress, I love the off-the shoulder style for daily wear, dressed up for evening, or thrown on over a bathing suit.  This blue and white striped one is only $24.50 right now, and it does come in three other colors, including navy:

Amy mentioned in her post about her new house that she’s practically cross-eyed after staring at lighting choices online, so I thought I’d share one of my favorite chandeliers.  It’s under $240 with free shipping–not bad!

These Wamsutta towels are so thick and heavy; if you have a college student, get them monogrammed so they don’t lose them in the laundry.  Sign up for a college student account using their .edu email address and they’ll get 20% off their entire order plus free shipping for a year.  That made these about $13.50 each (monogrammed and shipped) for Connor to take to school in the fall.

Whether you’re shopping for your dad or your husband, Father’s Day is right around the corner.  I bought this reversible Tommy Bahama quarter-zip top for my husband last Christmas and he loves it.  Now it’s on super-duper sale (+ free shipping) just in time for gift giving.  It looks great with jeans or shorts, too.

For a Dad who grills, we are big fans of the HomeRight ElectroLight fire starter.  We both have them and love them because they let us grill without using tons of chemicals to get the fire started. My husband uses his with charcoal or wood chips, but they’re also great for starting fire pits.

Last but not least, if you have a dad who is a cocktail lover, my husband says that these Luxardo Cherries are a bar staple.  They’re perfect in Manhattans, Old-Fashioneds, or any cocktail requiring a cherry!

Since I think husbands and dads are pretty hard to shop for, if you have any tried and true gift ideas, please drop them in the comments.  Thanks in advance, and thanks for stopping by!
